Mindful Moment: Cool down with your breath

June 20, 2016 | By Julie Luzarraga

  As temperatures rise this week use your breath to cool down.  When we practice mindfulness the body naturally begins to cool down. Bringing attention to one thing, without judgment engages the parasympathetic nervous system, which is like putting the brakes on internally.  When we’re hot physically or even emotionally hot and bothered, mindfulness can […]

“You have cancer” . . . now what?

June 18, 2016 | By Julie Luzarraga

“You have cancer.”  When spoken, these three words seem to linger in the air and then slowly begin to permeate every cell of your being.  It can leave you speechless, unable to breathe or move – some might call this “shock.”  Before the proclamation, you were many things…a husband, wife, daughter, sister, engineer, runner…now, instantly, […]

Whether the day has been challenging or easy, it will come to an end.  When we practice mindfulness, we are aware that each moment is impermanent or fleeting.  The default state of the human mind is to be either thinking about the past moment or looking ahead to the next moment.  Yet, the moment we […]

Mindful Moment: Retreat

June 04, 2016 | By Julie Luzarraga

“In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.”  Albert Camus Our everyday lives encourage habits.  We like to be efficient and it often feels that there is little time to spare.  So we develop our routines, our schedules and our habits.  Each day seems to involve some ritual […]

Mindful Moment: Non-Attachment

June 04, 2016 | By Julie Luzarraga

Of all the principles of a mindfulness practice, non-attachment or “letting go” is typically the most challenging.   We usually need to “let go” most when the stakes feel really high. Whatever it is we are trying to “let go” of tends to feel very sticky.  We try to breathe it in and out and it seems […]

It goes beyond sympathy or empathy and has major implications for our physical and emotional well-being. When we practice compassion, we communicate better, make better decisions […]
